It all began back in August with practices…16 young men began a journey with hopes and dreams of competing at the USA Hockey National Championships.
Sunday, March 19
th in Spokane, Washington, that dream came true.
The 2016-17 Sno-King Junior Thunderbirds 14U Team earned a spot at the USA 14U Tier II National Championships in Coral Springs, Florida with a dramatic 3
rd period comeback. Down 4-2 in the State Championship game, they came back to win 5-4 in overtime!
We are so proud of the team effort and honor of achieving such an incredible privilege!
Please join us in supporting them and their travels for Florida, April 6
th-10 th. We have a very short time to organize our last-minute travel plans.
Any donations will be greatly appreciated. Donations are tax-deductible and can be matched by those companies that provide such benefits.
Thank you very much!
